FDA Class I UDI Submission Deadline

FDA Class I








Class I and Unclassified medical devices that are required to be labeled with a UDI code, must submit product data to the FDA GUDID by December 8, 2022.

Note that the FDA has provided a Final Guidance outlining exceptions for “Consumer Health Products,” i.e., certain Class I devices that are 510(k) Exempt and only sold OTC directly to consumers. (Guidance finalized on July 22, 2022, previous enforcement date was September 24, 2022.)

If you market your Class I device according to one or more of the following conditions, the Class I GUDID Submission Exception does NOT apply and you must report product data to the FDA GUDID.

      • You distribute your Class I device to professional healthcare facilities (hospitals, clinics, physician offices, etc.)
      • Your Class I device is intended only for use by healthcare professionals
      • Your Class I device is reused on different patients and reprocessed using high-level disinfection and/or sterilization
      • Your Class I device requires 510(k)

If any of the above conditions apply, you have come to the right place…
